Are you sad that summer is ending? We sure are. But we have something to perk you up: an original gallery of photos of swimming dogs at a recent water park takeover. These water-loving pups are strutting their stuff poolside a la David Hasselhoff in Baywatch, and they couldn’t be happier about it.
Dogs of all shapes and sizes hit the first annual Paw Pool-Ooza at Wild Waves in Federal Way, WA over the weekend. Despite the dreary weather, retrievers, corgis, and doggos galore got the last of their summer ya-yas out at the beloved local water park, which is typically closed off to dogs.
